Hampton Bays got crushed pretty hard by the storm surge. The boat is fine, but Jackson's Marina suffered tremendous damage. The docks are all torn up. I feel bad for these guys, they have been my friends since I was seventeen years old.

Mason and I are fine. Lots of trees down in my neighborhood. No electricity or other services and no idea when they will be restored, but the house is fine and we even grilled up a couple NY Strips which we enjoyed with some sliced tomatoes and a bottle of 2003 Guigal Chateau d' Ampuis.

Thank you for asking and caring! I hope Mando and other forumites that were in harms way are doing as well as us tonight...

Good to hear Dennis. Do you keep your wine in real cellar or a wine chiller? If the latter and if you don't have a generator, then this seems like a good excuse to open some nice bottles and grill out until the lights come back on.

My only.contact with the civilized world (you guys) is my iPhone

Yes Larry my wine is in a chiller. No electricity so we have to drink Corton Charlemagne and Cote Rotie

Thanks for all the best wishes everyone!

Living off the grid on Corton Charlemagne and Cote Rotie sounds kind of appealing.

I have been down that road before. Good luck and I hope they figure out your power situation sooner than later.

My wine is in a box and ready to go whenever/wherever - no stinking storm stops me from the falling in the gutter.

Good luck to you and to others affected by the storm. I leave DC for ten days for a west coast trip and we get an earthquake and a hurricane. Go figure.

Good to hear you & Mason (and boat) are OK. You
and Mando were the first I thought of when I saw the tracking of Irene. I've been through a few hurricanes myself to know enough that you just never know. Im sure you rode it out in style, and am glad that nothing really bad happened to you.
Just curious: how does one obtain Internet access enough
to post without electricity? peace ~ Matt
